FA Cup 2025 on TV: BBC Sport signs new four-year free-to-air deal

Must read

BBC Sport will continue to show free-to-air coverage of the FA Cup after securing a four-year deal starting from the 2025-26 season.

Under a new partnership with TNT Sports, BBC Sport will screen 14 games per season, including the final at Wembley.

There will also be highlights and digital clips available across all of the broadcaster’s platforms.

Philip Bernie, interim director of BBC Sport, said the BBC was “proud” of its history of showing the FA Cup free for all fans.

He said: “This partnership for the next four years is brilliant news and, alongside our recent Premier League extension and UEFA Champions League highlights coming this year, means that BBC Sport will deliver fans top class analysis, commentary and coverage of the biggest football competitions free to air and accessible for all.”

Football Association chief executive Mark Bullingham said the organisation was looking forward to making “even more history” with BBC Sport in the years ahead.

As well as the final, BBC Sport will show two live matches from each round through to the quarter-finals and one semi-final.

BBC Sport’s existing deal to broadcast the FA Cup on a free-to-air basis has been ongoing for the past 10 years.
